    Small Questions v. 10105

    Tower of Joy questions Was the tower of joy an existing Tower that Rhaegar re-named, or was it the Tower of Joy before he went there with Lyana? Is the Tower's location well known? Is there anything in the books that states that the residents of that rough area know where to find it? Is there anything in the books that state where, in Dorne, this tower used to stand or other information, such as size, type of stone, etc?

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    I forgot the most obvious, from another thread. Schoolhouse Rock's "Lolly's Lolly's Lolly's get your Adverbs Here" whenever I even see Lollys name.

    Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" for Rhaegar and Lysana; and 'Veteran of the Psychic Wars' for Theon in Winterfell. Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party" for Jon and Theon, when they're dreaming about the dead Starks/Winterfell Crypts.

    Songs that Make Us Think of A Song of Ice and Fire

    Well, for me it's the obvious, Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" whenever I'm reading about new recruits taking their oaths to the Night's Watch. I always picture Edd yelling "Ye can't have any pudding 'till ye finish yer meat!" ACDC's "Money Talks" when reading about Tywin Lannister. Often, when reading about Barristan Selmy, I swear I hear "Protectors of the Earth" by Two Steps from Hell.

    Could Luwin have been the maester at Riverrun, and had traveled north with Cat as part of her household and delivered the remaining children at Winterfell?

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Sorry for the inane question, but what was the sequence by which Ned, Cat, Jon and Robb got to Winterfell after Robert's Rebellion? Did Ned show up at Riverrun, with Jon, collect Cat and Robb and all of them went to Winterfell? Did Ned go to Winterfell, drop off Jon, then go to Riverrun and collect Cat and Robb? Did Ned show up at Riverrun, without Jon, take Cat and Robb to Winterfell, then go to collect Jon? Is it some other sequence of events?

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Another odd question: Do members of the Night's Watch receive any form of pay, other than room and board? The reason I ask is the books state that the brothel in Moletown seems a fairly popular "Recreational" destination for brothers who aren't on duty. If they aren't paid, where do they get the money to pay for the service? Would it strictly be plunder from Wildlings or perhaps bartering with something they fabricated?

    Don't have my books handy, so I'll have to review at a later date, but didn't Victarion burn/drown the slaves before discussing the act with Moqorro, only saying later that it was a gift to both gods? Moqorro did tell Victation to kill Maester Kerwin, but apparently did not specify that he was to be burnt alive.

    Small Questions v. 10105

    Is their any source for the core beliefs and actions for those who worship R'hllor? The reason I ask is that Mel seems to perform some actions much differently than Thoros, or even Moqorro. In particular: Mel has a preference for burning people alive. Yet through all of his travels through the Riverlands, Thoros used hanging whenever the band executed someone. Moqorro also called for a man to be killed, but didn't specifically call for him to be burned alive (he was killed and thrown overboard.) Mel is very aggressive towards other faiths, calling them all false gods and burning weirwoods and septs. Thoros seems to show respect and courtesy towards septons...even calling one "brother", and showed respect for the ghost of High Hall. Moqorro once called the drowned god a servant of the great other, but did not say that all other gods were false. I'm working under the assumption that Mel is being controlled...much as she controlled both Mayce and Rattleshirt, so I'm trying to figure out if she's acting contrary to a Red Priest and if so, by how much.

    Manderly Wrote the Pink Letter

    I'm still of the belief that Ramsay wrote the letter, before even engaging Stannis, based upon both the mistaken belief that Theon and Jeyne were heading to The Wall and a sense of political crises. I think that Ramsay wanted to get the letter to Jon before Theon and Jeyne reached the wall, in order to prevent Jon from letting anyone else know that “Arya” wasn't Arya. If it became common knowledge that Ramsay had knowingly married a fake Arya, not only would it destabilize his legitimacy as Warden of the North, it would also prove embarrassing to the Lannisters. Since it was an alliance with the Lannisters that set the Boltons up as the new Wardens of the North, embarrassing the Lannisters could cost the Boltons that position.
